If you own an iPhone, you would probably update to new iOS versions either wirelessly or through iTunes. Updates allow you to enjoy new and exciting features and should not interfere with the workings of your phone.
You may, however, come across a scenario where a screen written ‘Attempting data recovery’ pops up when you are updating iTunes. This is a fairly new issue and you may be wondering what this iPhone attempting data recovery is all about. The ‘attempting data recovery’ screen will normally only show up when iOS is updating through iTunes. Once iOS is done updating, your data should all be recovered automatically.
Attempting data recovery after update
Oftentimes, the attempting data recovery screen will go off after the update is complete and your data will all be available. However, your phone may get stuck on the attempting data recovery screen, and nothing happens from there. When your phone is stuck on the screen that shows iPhone attempting data recovery iOS 11, you can try to restart the phone and see whether the process will be completed.

Losing data after updating
On the other hand, you may discover that you have lost data once the attempting data recovery process is done. You can restore your data if you had backed it up on iCloud or iTunes. You can do this by connecting your phone to the computer using a USB cable. You can then run iTunes, which will automatically recognize that the phone is on recovery mode. You will then be prompted to recover the data from a backup.
Once you recover your data, any data that is presently on your phone such as the settings and apps will be replaced by the backed up data. You may end up losing recent data that you had saved on your phone if you had not backed up your data in a while.
